Yorkshire company launches new product at healthcare event

Sidhil, the Halifax-based specialists supplying beds, trolleys and furniture for the health sector, will launch a brand-new product at the forthcoming MEDICA event and exhibition.

The family owned business, which is one of the main suppliers of hospital beds and cots to the NHS, will launch the Innovative IQ ICU bed with X-Ray backrest at the trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The Innovative IQ ICU bed has been designed around the four key principles of patient safety, clinical needs, infection control and ease of use. It aims to meet the increasingly high demands of a modern hospital environment.

Sidhil designs and manufactures all of its beds, couches and plinths in the UK at its purpose-built factory, giving total control over product quality at every stage of the production process. Systems are designed around flexibility, enabling them to manage high volumes alongside the production of more bespoke products to meet individual customer requirements.

At MEDICA 2016, the eighth time that Sidhil has exhibited at the event, the company is looking to meet with distributors and existing customers from across Europe and the rest of the world. Graham Turner, Sidhil sales & marketing director, said: "Sidhil has an excellent reputation for working closely with our existing international distributors by offering as much support as possible when entering new markets.

"As a result of the weakening pound, oversees customers purchasing from companies such as ourselves in the UK are saving 17% on costs, so it is an extremely attractive time to develop relationships with new international distributors. We have enjoyed great recent success in the Middle East and we are looking forward to welcoming organisations from there and all over the world to become part of the Sidhil distribution team."

For more than 40 years MEDICA has been dedicated to medical products, pharmaceutical products, medical technological products and health care service facilities and in 2015 attracted almost 5000 exhibitors and more than 130,000 visitors from 120 countries.
